Paul Vincett



Paul Vincett - Creative Director, Character and Puppet Design/Builder 

Paul, the company founder of Stitches and Glue, graduated with 1st class honors in Illustration at Westminster, specialising in character design and puppets for film and animation. Paul began his career making character mascot costumes out of a workshop in Crystal palace and went on to become a puppet maker for a number of leading Puppet studios. Alongside this the world of 'Stitches and Glue', developed into a  company and platform for his own artistic led puppet and designer toy project ventures, focusing on character development and storytelling. His unique approach to puppet making combines 'soft' engineering and more complex mechanics.

As well as being completely obsessed with developing his own projects, Paul works as a freelance puppet/prop/costume designer and maker for Theatre and Film and has since made puppets for feature films and International stage productions
